Rivera Primo® is providing a PowerDrive™ 6 speed transmission for the Bikernet/Cycle Source 15th Anniversary Giveaway Chopper, sponsored by XPress Lid and Spectro Oil, which is being awarded at the Las Vegas Bikefest this fall.
The Rivera Primo® PowerDrive™ 6 speed transmission features a 2-year unlimited mileage replacement guarantee and the backing of almost 40 years of the best customer service in the industry. The softail-styled unit comes in polished, chrome or black wrinkle finish. Gear ratios are set at a close-ratio 2.94:1 first gear; second gear 2.21; third gear 1.60, fourth gear 1.23; fifth gear 1.00, 0.860:1 overdrive sixth gear, which means it pulls when you need it and delivers exception MPG when cruising.
“Builders that hot rod Harleys, know that 6 speed PowerDrive™ trannys from this West Coast manufacturer, Rivera Primo®, are quality units that provide smooth, reliable and consistent shifts, said Chris Callen,” Editor of Cycle Source Magazine.
The PowerDrive™ 6 speed transmission when snicked into sixth gear will drop our rpm a good 500 points when compared to a 5 speed and will also smooth out the ride when we are cruising at 75 and greater mph.
“Our quality, performance tested transmissions looks good on the outside, but it is the special sauce on the inside that's the real thing of beauty, explained Ben Kudon, RPI Executive Director. “Packed into the case are six forged gears, which are all back cut for durability and easy shifting.”
